I exported the ASM instance in one of our test environment. oracle 11g aix box
As we all know that asm instance can be brought to nomount and mount. but not in open mode.
now when i check the view v$instance, it show the asm instance status as 'STARTED', but not mounted? Is there any reason behind this?
Same way i checked for exporting a database , and brought it to
nomount state, instance status was nomount
mount state, instance status was mounted
open state, instance status was open.
but when i check the v$asm_diskgroup it showed the diskgroup is mounted.
so cant we check an asm instance is mounted or not apart from v$asm_diskgroup view and alert log file?
